New Inscriptions from the City of David
Recent careful sifting of excavated debris from fills within the City of David have revealed a surprising collection of fish bones and clay bullae with important implications for the history of Jerusalem during the Iron Age. Professor Reich will provide a glimpse of these finds, which are the result of impressions of the seals of important figures within Jerusalem’s royal administration during biblical times (9th-8th cents. BCE).
This lecture is the second within a series during Winter Quarter by
Professor Reich. Along with Eli Shukron, Reich has co-directed
the oldest part of Jerusalem, known as the city of David, since 1995.
He has published numerous articles on Second Temple Period archaeology
and Israel and is also known for his co-edited volume on The Architecture of Ancient Israel.
PLEASE NOTE LOCATION, ROYCE HALL 314.
